>> like cannon ball run. >> people volume fear for that. >> at the end you win like 100 grand or something. >> maybe it was a bad example. >> here are your temps as you are waking up this morning. another cold one to the north. colder moving in towards florida and it's going to be probably about the coldest air mass tonight and tomorrow night that you have had across florida once this front gets through. this is a front also bringing some snow today across parts of the northeast. light snow. not going to cause any problems. people who have had so much snow last weekend because of the big blizzard don't want anymore. round one. bring an inch or or so of snow across new england. second part snow that develops down across parts of the mid-atlantic. snow across the carolinas. don't often see that might see one to three inches of snow accumulating today and tonight carolinas. even the coastal areas of the carolinas by the time we get into tonight. this turns into a developing coastal storm tomorrow. fortunately it's going to stay much further toward the east.
3:08 am
there had been talk this week that maybe we would be dealing with another big storm. i think it's going to be a little bit too far to the east. we will see maybe 3 to 5 inches of snow accumulating across cape cod and the islands and boston getting three to four inches as well. here are your high temps for the day today. tomorrow we remain very cold. temps in across the northeast remain very cold. this is the time of year where it's getting to you. it's getting to me. is it getting to you. >> that's why i'm escaping tomorrow to the tropics. >> do you remember this ad from the presidential campaign. it was run by the hillary clinton president for. 3:00 a.m. every president faces a foreign policy crisis. do you want this man, senator barack obama answering that phone call at 3:00 a.m.? well, it turns out, suddenly a relevant question. >> suddenly a relevant question because on the afternoon of september 11th, 2012, of course the day of the
3:09 am
benghazi attacks that unfolded, there was some question now at least being raised by republican congressman louie gohmert as to why -- how responsive was the president during this entire time? well, we know in the afternoon he did speak with his. >> leon panetta and general demps is i. >> 5:00 p.m. in the afternoon. louie gohmert raising this point 3:00 a.m. and whether or not he was able to sleep through all of these unfolding problems in benghazi, listen. >> president required a sleep aid that night but if he did, anybody else in america has trouble sleeping, you better get what he had because it works well. how the president of the united states could sleep that night as the ambassador that he put in place, that he put in harm's way was under attack or he had been kidnapped. being brutalized unspeakable
3:10 am
things being done to his person, his body. >> it would be helpful to know what the president did from the time that he got word of the attack. the attack started in washington, d.c. time at 3:42 in the afternoon. so, then there were 8 hours while it transpired and the only thing that we know from the congressional hearings is that the president had a half an hour conversation with leon panetta and general dempsey. we don't know what else the president was doing. the next time we know something about his schedule, it was the next day when he finally called the libyan president. it wasn't until september 12th and he was going on the fundraising trip to las vegas. it would just be helpful to know what was going on inside the white house? was he meeting in the situation room? who was he calling? who was he talking to? that is still shrouded in lots of questions. >> it would be helpful to know what has happened since. we know what hasn't happened.
3:11 am
no one taken into custody. no one held or questioned. it shows the faces of a lot of the attackers. none of them appear to be answering questions from the u.s. authorities. why is that? >> the president says this is the most apparent administration in history. other day on the google hangout forum. answering questions about transparency. i have been transparent with just about everything. most of the issues around national security we can't be as open about. then talking about benghazi. all the questions around benghazi have been answered. this is what the said. >> this is the most transparent administration in history there are a handful of issues. mostly around national security. where people have legitimate questions. where they are still concerned about whether or not we have all the information we need. benghazi was good example of that. that was driven by campaign stuff. we have had had more testimony and more paper provided to congress than ever before and congress is sort of running
3:12 am
out of things to ask. >> so, in other words, be quiet, shut up, stop asking questions, about there is nothing to see here. move on along, a national security issue. a lot of paper generated on, this really all the answers have been given. in fact, the most basic answers remain unanswered. >> absolutely. in fact, he says they are running out of questions to ask. in fact, it sounds like every time they interview someone. for instance this happened to leon panetta it actually begs more questions. >> where are the sur vifers and why haven't we heard from them? >> excellent question. >> lindsey graham asking whether anyone has been held accountable. anyone fired? paid administrative leave. this happens in washington paid administrative leave they quietly come back to work a little bit later and hope the smoke has cleared. there is still a lot of questions congress is asking of the administration that they haven't had answers from. >> there has been s. a study done by kaiser health news. this comes to us from some crazy outfit called daily
3:13 am
caller. it shows that $2 billion of taxpayer money a year is spent on providing aid, medical aid for pregnant illegal immigrants when they show up in the hospital, obviously it is not our style to turn anyone away when they are in labor. to the tune of $2 billion we have been paying for them to have babies keep in mind this is illegal. they are not eligible for receiving federal welfare benefits or shouldn't be. yet, that's where this money is coming from. no one is doing anything about it. >> illegal, yes, because medicaid is not supposed to go to illegal immigrants and to funding if you are not a u.s. citizen. however in 1980s, a law was put in congress to vote on this to make sure that no one in the delivery room or no one in the emergency room was turned away that all patients need to be stabilized in an
3:14 am
emergency situation. they are not asked to ask about legal status or citizenship. you have these two opposing laws here. on the one hand the hospital is not supposed to ask anything about legal status. on the other hand, medicaid is not supposed to go to fund illegal immigration. >> they have to force immigration law. this is going to happen as long as we don't control our borders. listen to stephan camerota. on reporting live -- o'reilly here is what he said. >> treat them and provide services. if a kid shows up to school we are going today indicate them. if you want to avoid the cost enforce your immigration laws and cause people to go home. otherwise, this is what is going to happen. there is no middle ground here. well, we will let him here but we won't give him education. we will let them here but won't way for their health care. >> are you supposed to turn them away? they can't ask these questions. let us know what you think about. this friends

3:19 am
central russia on friday as onlookers watched in horror magna. meteor explosion triggered chaos in the streets. more than a thousand people were injured including 200 children. then last night another meteor spotted here in the united states. take a look at this video caught on dash cam video in the bay area in california. what is going on? why are we seeing all these meteors suddenly. popular science magazine dave mosier. nice to see you this morning. >> nice to see you. are we seeing more of these as a result of camera phones smart phones or seeing a spike of the number of meteors hitting earth lately? >> it's absolutely because we have cam ares in our dash phones, cell phones, these are logging meteors all over the place. in russia where there is a lot of crime, corruption. drivers put these in their dash because they want to be
3:20 am
able to go to court and say look, this guy threw himself in front of my car they have prolific amount of cameras in their dash boards. >> this seemed at least in recent memory to be larger than anything we have seen, right? >> yeah, scientists are saying this particular event was one that injured more people than anybody has ever known about. people being a could word there had been very large asteroids wiped out species millions of years ago. in 1908 one of the biggest recent asteroid events maybe we will get pictures of this later in the show. that blast in 1908 happened in a very pretty close proximity to what happened in russia the other day in siberia why does it seem like siberia seems to
3:21 am
be a target for these blasts? >> it's easy to think that most of the regions of earth are remote. there are not people there. in siberia is very large. i mean, it's just statistics working here. when the meteor comes over the earth and air blast above land. it's going knob a place like siberia or a desert. >> let's talk about warning signs, people scared. we hear a congressional panel here on the safety of the united states author these type of blasts. 20 atomic bombs. that's no joke. something like that hits a major city we could be in a world of hurt are there any warning signs we could plan for as it relates to meteors? >> the warning signs are actually going to be amateur astronomers right now. those people have the most eyes on the sky. even nasa is looking at the skies but in terms of shear numbers, there are lots of people out in their backyards with telescopes looking up at the sky and this -- asteroid

3:27 am
>> or maybe good ideas. i don't know if i have the answers. this is a tricky topic. >> how do you know when it's a good time to retire? >> we have two ideas. the list of yes and when you should retire and when you really should step back. let's start with some ideas. you have a solid nest egg. it takes a lot of money to retire. so they are saying you should have about $363,000 saved up. but typically most people have about 120,000. it costs a lot of money to retire. if you are planning on spending more. you have to live within your means. low withdrawals. those would be some things. also no penalties at 59.5 to take out from your ira at 62. you start with social security. but all of these things get exhausted. if you can stay on and continue with your pension, and matching and for a few more years and not miserable. you probably should stay on. but those are the reasons. the last one would be you have hobbies and things that you and your spouse agreed on that you would love to do. and that would be fun.
3:28 am
right? whether it's tennis, maybe it's traveling, whatever. that's your yes list. >> how do you know when you shouldn't? how do you discern between feeling frustrated with your job. wishing you had more time off. who doesn't. really knowing it's time to bow out. >> in the research i have done looking at the reason for no. first of it a lot of them is monetary. if you have debt, credit card debt. you have car loans. you are a cosigner. your kids are in college. those are the types of things that really add up. you may want to avoid that also, car and house concerns. is your house making a crazy noise? is your roof leaking. these are going to cost a the love money to get that up and going. don't make any rash decisions? are you recently divorced or widowed and the last thing that came up on my research really and this really is just so obvious. are you passionate about what you are doing? are you an entrepreneur. are you a ceo? are you a professor? is it the kind of thing if you went to a party hey, aren't you the guy who used to own that great italian restaurant?
3:29 am
weren't you the ceo of that company that -- you know, whatever. if you are going to go to a party and someone is going to say that to you and that's just going to kill you, then you probably should stay on and stick with what you are passionate about. >> that's a great point. some so many people do look at retirement brass ring aiming for. your identity is wrapped up in your career. i think people underestimate how sometimes empty they will feel when they radio tire. >> golden years. a lot of people speak with in golden years are less happy than they thought they were going to be. it costs a lot of money to retire. >> wasn't there a middle ground? should you go from 40 hours a week to zero? maybe you could go to 20. >> so happy you mentioned that. part time work. stigma about being welcoming person at wal-mart. to try to get the part-time work is extremely difficult. that's the other part of it. >> maybe worth doing? >> right. >> and the other -- statistics of how many people retire and the age of retirement has been going up. up to 67. it was 63 a decade ago.
3:30 am
in the mid 90's it was age 60. obviously that's going up. i'm figuring by the time i'm ready to retire i will probably never retire. >> 80, 90. >> 101. when i'm a sen centurion. >> imagine this, you are 27,000 feet in the air and the plane's door opens? the only thing holding it closed, this blanket and some scotch tape. the insane true story coming up. >> okay, macgyver. should doing this be illegal? one city wants to make texting and walking against the law. listen up rick reichmuth. is that a good idea? we report, you decide. how do we take an unpolished room and make it shine?

while texting. [bear growling] >> that's where you see the bear. >> helicopter was tracking this thing. he didn't even notice the hospital in the sky tracking a bear. >> well, in fairness, you don't expect a bear to be walking down the sidewalk. >> do you expect a large fountain toed you suddenly appear in front of you. that's what happened in this woman at the mall was texting. ooptiony daisy. >> walks right into a fountain. wasn't paying attention. this is a giant. i used to work in this mall in redding. this is a massive fountain. i don't know how she missed it and she falls right in the water. >> anything that prevents that from happening i'm against. that's just hilarious. >> you like more. i have more for you. watch this next woman. she is also texting. she goes also into the drink. there you go. >> canal. >> does so great. why would you want to make that illegal? look, i realize that people are injured doing. this people are injured taking a shower. actually. more people die showering.
3:37 am
than die texting. does the government have a role in regulating this? what won't they regulate? >> rick reichmuth is famous for walking through the stadium and nearly walking into traffic and telephone policies. have you ever had a close call like that, rick? >> i have had so many close calls. >> have you wumped into me on the street. hey, buddy. hi, rick. >> the worse part is i riewcially have my ear phones. in listening to music and texting and walking down the street. >> sometimes people will move so you think you can move. so i have had many times like at a crosswalk somebody starts to walk. therefore i think i can walk and then i shouldn't be because i can't hear anything. it's dangerous. >> you are a dangerous man, rick reichmuth. >> i understand the risk of it. >> let us know if you think this is government going too far. friends at fox email us. >> it's a cold, winter who s. here. this week felt like it's mid february and winter has been going on for a long time. unfortunately i have got to tell you a lot cold air

3:40 am
army. >> as he sees it, the only solution is to either extend deployments or send untrained troops to the front lines. neither option is particularly attractive. and republicans are already pointing fingers at the president. >> >> in his state of the union address. president obama himself admitted that these cuts were a really bad idea. what the president failed to mention was that the sequester was his idea, proposed by his great administration, during the debt limit negotiation in 2011 republicans in congress want to replace the defense cuts with even deeper cuts to domestic programs. the president says he he prefers a more balanced approach. >> i disagree with republicans who think we should do that by making even bigger cuts to things like education and job training. that would force our senior citizens and working families to bear the burden of deficit reduction while the wealthiest are asked to do nothing more.
3:41 am
that won't work. we can't just cut our way to prosperity. >> the scweesster is now set to take effect in 13 days but congress is still in recess for 8 more days. >> high speed chase comes to crashing halt and whole thing is caught on camera. >> well, iowa police say the driver took off when they tried to pull him over. at times the chase reached speeds of up to 110 miles per hour. no one was hurt -- i'm sorry, no one was in the cruiser when it was hit. the man behind the wheel did die in the crash with the massive fear outbreak this year. many people turned to online medications, beware, the fadz says unapproved products could not only hurt your wallet but also be dangerous to your

3:43 am
flight was never in jeopardy. it's good to know your door can blow off and the airplane can land. see people putting their foot up on emergency doors. one kick and could fall open. >> never at risk because doors only open inward. passengers say the noise was so loud they couldn't talk. they could barely breathe and it was freezing. sounds like maybe it was a problem. >> here is another moral of the story. don't use blank blankets to try to stuff up a pressure rised hole. use one of the rubberized pieces of dinner chicken they serve you. that will block. >> three entrees. all right. coming up next on the show. olympic hero blade runner charged with murder and prosecutors say this was no accident. how will they prove their case? dr. keith ablow takes us inside what the prosecution may do next. >> and then from hollywood to congress brand new information on a possible senate run for actress ashley judd.

4:11 am
across the country for success by having kids be socialized early around other children. have an opportunity for even those who are single moms who don't have an opportunity to go to work and taking care of their children. this would free them up to go to work and get a job. >> if only it were that easy. >> the truth is this makes sense. sounds like a good. anyone who is for this has to answer a question why hasn't head start work? we have been untold billions into it. the verdict is in. it makes no discernible difference. the truth is if your parents are married you have a much better shot at academic and life success than if they are not. 43% of all kids in america born out of wedlock that is the central problem. >> what you are talking about new study from hhs, department of health and human services, released in october. it was a follow-up study to look at the progress if any that head start programs make and what they discovered is that they make a big

difference during the years they are in head start. more verbal and socialized at the very beginning of their life. however, unfortunately the results seem to catch up with their piers by 3rd grade there is no evidence that it did any advantage. >> overwhelming evidence that, again, billions upon billions upon billions of dollars have been spent on this. >> pls would be spent on this program as well. the cost in this $98 billion over 10 years. charles krauthammer was sort of poking fun at this idea on "special report" the other day. take a listen to thinks thoughts. >> from losers to 4-year-olds of america. here they are jumping around, laughing, screaming beings having a great time and obama wants them all to go to school every single one right away. can't wait and why? to prepare them for the high tech economy of the future

so-called free preschool for everyone. 40 billion toward infrastructure and untold amount but likely trillions for, quote, combating climate change. can we afford all of this? >> that's the question we have to ask ourselves. it's not that these programs wouldn't be good programs. that's debatable. but, we're over $16 trillion in debt. we have seen the debt rise by nearly $6 trillion over the course of the past four years. this president said he was going to cut the deficit in half in his first term and he didn't do that we're stuck in this position where we have been downgraded as a nation nearly two years ago. we can't even get a budget out of congress. they can't even find ways to cut any spending. we're just going to be proposing new programs? i mean, we really have to look in getting our fiscal house in order before we can even think about what else we need to be doing. >> so you are proposing a mardi gras solution to this. tell me about that. >> well, it's part of our talk is cheap campaign. in the beginning of january. we started a campaign calling

4:28 am
to speak for the first time on film what our lincoln would sound like. >> high and continuey. most people hearing the gettysburg address for the first time they couldn't hear him over the den of the crowd. john wilkes booth what we know of him have two dimensional we don't have much to know of him outside of the theater and assassination. it must have been hard for you to bring this character to life in this film to give him more legs than just what we know about him. >> i think that playing a villain you are actually given quite a bit of license to it explore. they are larger than life characters often. and john wilkes booth is no exception. i think that he is probably the consummate villain because he is a dramatic person. things we don't know about him he was a famous actor in the matinee idol like. very popular and well-liked. came from an acting family.

his interpretation of reality was sort of curiously dramatic. the whole world is a stage. i would say is his main platform. >> he was able to walk into ford's theater because people knew him. >> on his home turf. >> people didn't think anything of it let's talk about the myth side of this. for both of these characters it's god to be hard to have these characters be grounded and not be sort of mythical people. they were humans after all, billy. >> i think that was -- if i can speak for jesse, i think that was really the gist of it for both of us. was to find the humanity in both of these things and each of these characters and i know that that is certainly what i focused on. over time lincoln has been iconized. we don't really think of him as a human being. he is as close as we have to a

remember, that contentious campaign between then senator barack obama and then -- well, then senator still senator hillary clinton at the time. hillary clinton for president campaign put out that famous 3:00 a.m. television ad questioning what would our leader do at 3:00 a.m. should something tragic happen in the united states? here is that ad. let's take a look at it.

[phone continuing to ring] >> it's 3:00 a.m. and your children are safe and asleep. >> little bit of foreshadowing of the reality. premise that every president is faced with unexpected foreign policy crises and you can't really know how he is going to respond until the moment it's upon him and we now know something about how the president responded to the attack on benghazi in which, of course, our americans
5:08 am
including our ambassador to libya were murdered. turns out not really at all. we have evidence of one phone call between the president and the secretary of defense. that afternoon. i think. >> it was closer to 3:00 in the afternoon. it wasn't 3:00 in the morning it was actually the afternoon, that is raising a lot of questions. what happened all hell was breaking loose in benghazi. and the rest of that night? there are still questions about where the president was, what he was doing? was he talking to anybody? was he issuing any sorts of orders for saving the ambassador there. chris stevens, who ultimately was killed? >> parallel linking in the theater still right now for an academy award with the president, of course, and everyone who follows who has followed the president abraham lincoln knows him war department there at all hours of the night. he might be the only one at the war department getting dispatches from the front lines and wanting to know what was going on.
5:09 am
louie gohmert on the floor of congress basically pointing out that he can't understand how the president could be asleep that night on september 11th into september 12th. >> 2012. while all of this was unfolding. listen to him. >> i have no idea if the president required a sleep aid that night but if he did, anybody else in america has trouble sleeping, you better get what he had. because it works well. how the president of the united states could sleep that night, as the ambassador that he put in place, that he put in harm's way was either under attack or he had been kidnapped, being brutalized unspeakable things being done to his person, his body. >> to your point we don't know, right? >> we do know quite a bit. we know that four americans were killed. we know nobody has been held accountable. the perpetrators haven't been held accountable.
5:10 am
nobody is in custody for these crimes. no one in the u.s. government has been fired for them. we also note administration's posture on this is hey, back off. stop asking us questions. we have no obligation to answer them. by the way, we didn't really do anything wrong. nobody is suggesting the president wanted this to happen, of course not. everyone gives the administration the benefit of the doubt on that. this was a disaster. and a screw up. why not just admit it. instead of lecturing the rest of us how all questions are politically motivated. no we have real questions that you haven't answered. >> but the president feels differently. he thinks that his administration has answered everything in terms of benghazi. in fact, he says that other lawmakers are running out of questions. listen to the president on a google forum yesterday. >> this is the most transparent administration in history. are there are a handful of issues. mostly around national security. where people have legitimate questions. where they are still concerned about whether or not we have all the information we need. benghazi, by the way. is not a good example of that. that was largely driven by campaign stuff because
5:11 am
everything about that we have had more testimony and more paper provided to congress than ever before and congress is sort of running out of things to ask. >> there are no legitimate questions still outstanding about benghazi. you are asking questions about benghazi illegitimate. don't you dare ask a question about benghazi. >> hey, i'm not. back off. is it campaign motivated as the president said? let us know your thoughts. >> the campaign is over. the campaign is other. i understand what he is saying to his mind this was all about the campaign. the campaign is over. john mccain and lindsey graham and senators and house -- >> i don't even think what she said is legitimate according to the president. illegitimate even to ask a question. be quiet. >> going to ask a question about this. because we're getting more information out of kaiser health news. put together a little research as to how much money we are spending on medicare and medicaid for illegal immigrants as they enter the emergency room. this is happening in states
5:12 am
with large population of illegal immigrants such as florida, north carolina, california and others. where they go to emergency rooms, they are pregnant and the emergency room hand delsz their pregnancy and the delivery to the tune of $2 billion a year that we're spending on these pregnancies and these deliveries. >> that medicaid is spending and illegals aren't eligible for medicaid but they are getting anyway. the reason is that doctors and nurses just like teachers and pals shouldn't be charged with enforcing immigration law. federal government's job not doing it illegal aliens show up at hospitals. of course they are going to be treated because doctors treated patients. that's what we do. >> if a woman is in labor, she can show up at an emergency room. one of the beautiful things about this country. that she would never be turned away at the door. but, of course, that costs money and it's costing more and more every year. stephan cam rot tax no relation. director of research for the center for immigration studies has some thoughts on them. he shared them on o'reilly.
5:13 am
>> it's clear that we're going to treat them. we're going to provide services. just like if a kid shows up at a school we are going to educate them. if you you want to avoid the cost. you have to enforce your immigration laws and cause people to go home. otherwise, this is what is going to happen. there is no middle ground here. you can't say well, we will let them here but we won't give them education. let them hear but won't pay for healthcare. >> con athletics know is this costs less than 1% of the cost of medicaid. fraction of the overall cost to be clear. this has been happening since the 1980s when congress, to your point, basically said that no one can be turned away. that if you have a patient that comes in the emergency room, a hospital can't turn them away. they are not allowed to really ask the questions. do you have a social security card? are you here legally? they're not supposed to ask those questions. so since the 1980s this has been going on. >> that's one of the reasons that we have 11 million illegal aliens in this country because people from other countries, especially contiguous countries understand come to the u.s., once you cross the border you get free stuff.
5:14 am
free food and food stamps. medicare and medicaid. free housing. you are north asked for a driver's license. a good deal to come here. inducement to come. as long as the federal government doesn't enforce the laws it is sworn to uphold and they're not enforcing them. this will continue. >> let us know what you think. you can find us all on twitter and at meanwhile the man who took down bin laden raising a red flag on capitol hill about veterans' benefits. are we leaving our heros behind after their service in the war in the former secretary of veterans affairs under president george w. bush is going to join us to talk about that issue next. >> then it's the moment have you been looking for. alisyn is going to be going primal in a new workout. >> am i doing this. >> imagine alisyn doing this. >> i think that is alisyn. this is america.

is something wrong with this >> first thing i would like to do if i ever had a chance to meet him is to thank him for his service and heroic actions of getting rid of bin laden for the world. but he does also now, i think, raise a very important point the services are big and they are governed by law and you have to have 20 years of honorable service to retire and he did not. >> well, what about though -- go ahead, sir. continue. >> well, i think what he is raising and that we should now be thinking about is a new way to give credit for retirement for people like him. i read where one year he was deployed for 300 days away from his wife and three children on a very dangerous always secret mission. perhaps what we ought to do because of the a symmetric wars that he would fighting and what these people have to

go through is give them double credit for times that they are in the impacted zone opposed to being back in the zone of the interior back away from the combat. >> that makes perfect sense. >> i think that's something that congress now ought to be looking at? >> that's a great point he didn't do it because he loves playing golf. he said his body is falling apart and his marriage was falling apart because he had spent so much time away it sounds like what you are suggesting that there be a special category for guys like seal team six members who do just the most dangerous heroic stuff. >> i don't know if we can do it that narrowly combat pay
5:21 am
while they are there i don't know what the number. twice as much time credit for retirement as they do when they are not in a deployed status. this would also be another way to recognize and to thank all those people, especially those seal teams and, you know, those special op.s people who get no credit publicly for anything that they do and they are always in harm's way. and so we can certainly do it for them or a designated specialty that they have. big system so you have to have some uniformity but i think it's time that we think of that. >> that's my next question. we don't have. time. but the shooter went to capitol hill this week. he talked to lawmakers about all of this stuff. are we nimble enough as a government and as a system that we can make some of these accommodations or is this just bloated, bogged down in bureaucracy? will they get some help?
5:22 am
we will see, certainly the department of veterans affairs is nimble enough. he should not be in a cue there for any kind of medical attention that he needs. i mean, he ought to be right in the front line there. i assume that he is that is another question about va benefits. that's taking a long time. we ought to have exceptional system. tried to institute that. those coming back from afghanistan and rawng. >> absolutely. let's hope because of his story this gets more attention and may get the help they need. mr. nicole son thanks so much for joining us with your thoughts. we appreciate it. >> pleasure. >> more "fox & friends" when we come back in three minutes. the verizon share everything plan for small business. get a shareable pool of data... got enough joshua trees? ... on up to 25 devices. so you can spend less time... yea, the golden barrels... managing wireless costs and technology and more time driving your business potential.

will the president use the state of the union speech latest push raising this country's minimum wage from 7:25 to nine bucks an hour? what effect would that have on jobs and the economy? joining us from a fair and balanced debate. mark hanna and republican strategist and fox news contributor tony, welcome to you both. >> great to see you, tucker. >> hey, tucker. >> is this how economics
5:49 am
works? government passes a law and everyone becomes more pros officer russ in that sounds like magic to me. >> i don't think $9 an hour exactly equals prosperity in the sense that we understand. no, this is how the american economics has worked for decades and decades and it's consistent with the best traditions of american capitalism. you saw in the 196 os, the minimum wage was well over $10 by today's standards and unemployment went down. every time we have let the minimum wage dwindle, unemployment has gone up. it happened in the 1980s, look, what what matters is that people have money to spend. driven on consumption and production. henry ford. no less an american capitalist. henry ford knew he had to pay his workers enough money so they could afford it the cars that they were gelding on the assem by mr. line. this is something that henry ford would support today if he were alive and i think a lot of my friends in the business community have come out and said that they support the president, of course. >> they ought to be doing it. >> increase $9 an hour.
5:50 am
if this magic pass a law people get more money idea actually works, why $9? why not make it $40 an hour? >> exactly right, tucker. very arbitrary number. a guy like mark hanna thinks it's not enough. always have that argument it should go up. exactly why you don't need the government to make these decisions for you. the free market makes these determinations based on wanting to recruit and retain good employees. minimum wage is not something that people generally live off of. this is one of the biggest can a nardz perpetuated by the president's speech. he put this narrative out there that you are raising a family of two kids on a minimum wage that somehow it's, you know, two family incomes, two people working. and working poor rather who are benefiting from this. only 4.7% according to the bureau of labor statistics of minimum wage earning people fall into the category the president describes. 49% are people under 24 years old who are working and they are the ones who are going to
5:51 am
be the most affected. >> hang on. marc, i want to get back to something you said a minute ago. you said you know business owners who are in favor of this. i wonder why business owners themselves haven't come up with this in the first place. the president very little experience in the private sector knows more about economics than business owners? is that what you are saying? >> i will tell you one thing, first, i want to clear up something because i think tony was being a little bit disingenuous. >> no offense taken, mark. >> parents. this is something that the government has to come up with. business owners know and the ones i have spoken with said we can't pay our workers a little bit more when the competition is paying them 7.50 an hour. 7.25 an hour. there is is competitive pressure to pay workers as little as possible to increase their productivity. >> when you take out the competition we get more efficiency? >> we increase the baseline to $9 an hour and, again, $7.25 an hour. we are talking about $14,500 a year. >> gentlemen, sorry, unfortunately, sadly we are

since this shooting. well, actually, my treatment as of late has been kind of crazy, you know, it's been basically as if like what happened to us really doesn't matter. it's not showing a high level of importance. and those of us that are in the military, we're kind of being rushed out and the benefits that we took, we will receive, if this was a combat eve event, opposed to being called workplace violence is a difference. and more like smack in the face and the service day, we have been given to our nation. >> and sergeant lunsford i don't have to tell you one of the controversies of the aftermath of this tragedy is major hassan is not considered a terrorist, this wasn't considered terrorism. this was considered a workplace shooting.
6:20 am
what's your thought on that. >> my thought on that it's a lie. all military personnel, we have to take the training, level one, anti-terrorist training, level two anti-terrorist training and the fort hood shooting as a terrorist act, one. and two, the evidence from the report, and taking the entire report that dictates that major hassan was following orders from awlaki giving him permission to give his jihad and spawn the attack on the building in fort hood. >> so when you heard the shooter scream allah akbar as he was pulling the trigger and began this. was there any idea in your mind that he was motivated by religion and-- >> no doubt. in our training in the military. we're taught before a jihadist would perform their act. that's one of the things they say, god is great. that's their motivating piece
6:21 am
to give them the imaging to perform any devious act they're going to perform. >> you say you want to make sure that the mistakes that led to this tragedy never happened again. and so what do you want to see happen? >> well, the individuals that were in charge of major hassan when he was at walter reed need to be held accountable, not by a lateral transfer from one department or one division to another. they need to be held accountable by showing dereliction of duty not stepping up and doing his job. the second thing. we need to have better lines of communications between all the federal services, the fbi and others were tracking major hassan and tonight let d 0 d did not let them know. and dod didn't let the fbi or homeland security the issues they were having this guy. >> alisyn: problems. >> tucker: yes, they are. sergeant, thank you for joining us.

ending to poverty? >> according to the u.s. sen census bureau, by 80%. >> tucker: the director of national marriage week joins us here and thanks for coming on. 80%, there's no government program that comes anywhere close to that that's a remarkable number. >> and the brookings institution says if we have the marriage rates today that we had in 1970, there would be a 25% drop in poverty. >> tucker: brookings being a right wing evangelical-- no, a liberal think tank. >> no, i think this is an area where the left and right can come together. that marriage is an effective anti-poverty program. in 1970, almost 80% of all the adults in america were married and now that's down to 52% so we have a huge loss in the practice of marriage. >> alisyn: is it just because, with marriage there are two incomes helping the household and helping the children or is there more to marriage than that? >> there's more to marriage than that. although, we want to get the word out to the benefits.
6:48 am
marriage does bring you more individual financial stability, more financial stability for your household and the nation and there are huge costs attached to the decline of marriage. but it's really about the children. for the outcome of the child. so children perform much better in school, have less trouble with the law. less addiction, less teen pregnancy. if you really want to give your children the advantage, marriage is the place to get them the advantage and we don't want this to be a campaign that makes anybody feel guilty. >> alisyn: of course, don't want to vilify single parents and sometimes it's the only option and may be the best for their circumstances. >> we want people to find success. and in a few years national marriage has grown to a thousand events across the country this year, where marriage education events and we'd like to see that become tens of thousands and we believe if we've had effective campaigns for anti-smoking and
6:49 am
recycling and exercise, why can't we have a campaign to promote the benefit of marriage and word out that there are things to do to have more success. >> it'd be nice if the political leaders bought into this. and you say the loss of marriage has led to a decline in the nation's marital skills. what's that mean? >> it's a loss of modeling. a few weeksing, i spoke with a privileged 23-year-old young woman mo says she and her friends think that they don't really know what a good marriage looks and feels like because they came from broken homes. and i thought that was pretty remarkable, but-- >> and the responsibilities and pop culture, there aren't a lot of really great, funny movies and sit comes and stuff that show, you know marriage. >> we have celebrities who are modeling unwed parenthood, but they have millions of dollars and don't realize that they're modeling something for people who live paycheck to paycheck and that's not the best situation for them. >> tucker: and partly because political correctness suggests
6:50 am
that it's somehow wrong to endorse marriage as a superior life style. >> well, 41% of all american babies today are born outside of wedlock and we should all rn affecting the next generation, whether they have modeling and they're going to have skills, to have healthy marriages and then pass that on, but it disadvantages children. our message is that we want to help people break the cycle of poverty. that, you know, if you graduate from high school, work full-time and postpone marriage and child bearing until after age 21, you have only a 2% chance of poverty. if you don't do those, 77% chance of being in poverty. so, this an effort toward compassion. helping people break the cycle of poverty, and give advantages to their children and he we want to get the word out that we have resources for how to help people, if they're in crisis in their marriage, and they should realize that people do overcome these crisis. there are stories of healing and reconciliation and it's so
6:51 am
worth it, so worth the efforts. >> it's a great point and it's national marriage week, usa, and people can go there and find out more information. thanks so much for coming in. >> thank you. >> that's great. next, fraud alert. scammers taking advantage of a home owners how to make certain you don't fall victim to widespread mortgage fraud. coming up. ♪ i got a pocketful of sunshine ♪ ♪ oh whoa, whoa ♪ ♪ do want you to want, never gonna break me ♪ ♪ sticks and stones never gonna take me, no, whoa, whoa ♪ ♪ take me away ♪ it should be under stephens. the verizon share everything plan for small business. get a shareable pool of data... got enough joshua trees? ... on up to 25 devices. so you can spend less time... yea, the golden barrels... managing wireless costs and technology and more time driving your business potential. looks like we're going to need to order more agaves... ah! oh! ow! ... and more bandages. that's powerful. sharble data plus unlimited talk and text. now save $50 on a droid razr maxx hd by motorola.

6:56 am
really big scams to be aware of. the first as you said, people posing as official counselors and they'll create a company that sounds very much like the name of a government agency, a nonprofit and telling you you've already been approved for loan modification and then demand a fee. another scam to watch out for is called a loan audit. they claim they'll have an expert review all of your mortgage documents and any inconsistencesi inconsistencesies, they'll guarantee get out of the foreclosure. >> clayton: i've seen letters in the mail from a mortgage company that says we want to review your mortgage and we'll help you out. and maybe lower your cost. is that something to look out for? >> well, yes and no, the thing is, they're very sophisticated scams and seem like they're legitimate and lenders mr. send you out those types of notices. the important thing is to call your lender and verify that that notice is actually coming from the mortgage holder, or the mortgage servicer who you
6:57 am
